The flood situation is grim in Kerala as lakhs of people lost their homes and the death toll rose to more than 370. Thankfully, help has been pouring in from various quarters. Eminent personalities and celebrities are donating a huge amount of money as a part of the relief measures and they are using their power to urge the others to do the same.
Shah Rukh Khan’s welfare organization - Meer Foundation, which has been actively supporting the needy took a step in the same direction. Meer Foundation has made a donation to Kerala’s CM Distress Relief Fund. The foundation has donated an amount of Rs. 21 lakh towards the welfare of victims of Kerala floods. For the uninitiated, SRK’s Meer Foundation, named after his late father, is actively working with restoring the lives of acid attack survivors and cancer patients.
SRK’s good deed did not go unnoticed as Academy Award-winning composer, Resul Pookutty took to Twitter to share his gratitude towards Shah Rukh for helping the flood-hit state.
King Khan is however not the only one who has come out in support. Other celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan, Jacqueline Fernandez and Dulquer Salmaan too are among many celebrities who have come forward to help Kerala in its time of need.
